…on being pregnant.

I am seriously pregnant.

I feel like I might be past that point where everything makes me gag and that point where people are wondering if I’m pregnant or have just gained weight…you know that awkward stage.

With Noah and Jack I loved being pregnant. Never felt sick, never restless or anything…just felt good! But Sophia and this peanut are different stories. I am completely restless with this one. I fall asleep early only to wake up at 2:30am to go to the bathroom and not go back to sleep for hours. These last two pregnancies have been harder…but there’s always worse.  Like throwing up everyday for 9 months. I would die….and have one kid.  I’m waiting for that middle trimester “great feeling” we’re supposed to get.  I’ll let you know when it gets here.

Right now, all I can think about is grapefruit and how desperately I need one…and how our grocer’s doesn’t have any until November…and how my face turned dark and I nearly choked the nice man in the white apron explaining the whole “winter fruit” situation in his little Southern accent.  Don’t care about the fruit cycle…just want a blasted grapefruit…or 60.

Happy Midweek, m’ladies.

  1. girl. i feel for you. i hated every second of being pregnant with camden and it made me not want to have children anymore. i really hope you feel so good in your 2nd trimester. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. i'm glad to know you did get that grapefruit afterall. maybe this is another girl? they always seem to be a bit more dramatic… even in their pregnancies, right?! sage was the epitome (and is) of drama! but oh do i love her!!!!

  3. I totally craved grapefruit with my boys! I finally just started drinking juice instead of the fruit because preparing the grapefruit got too time consuming for me! I wanted that juice NOW! Sorry you can't buy any grapefruit, send me your address and I will ship you some pronto!

  4. Ha! You're totally having a girl! Couldn't get enough grapefruit during my pregnancy with my 3rd and only girl. I had to settle for grapefruit sorbet (which is amazing by the way). I found your sweet blog through my friends Megan and Cailan. Can't wait to see if I'm right! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I'm sitting at panera.. and when i got up to get a napkin (and stretch my legs) a lady at another table asked if baby is ready to come any day now.

    "actually, no lady. i've got 2.5 more months. but thank for making me feel really good." rude. (i'm obviously hormonal and i didn't say that to her.. it was just in my head.)

    and i will somehow get you a grapefruit if you can find a cure for leg cramps ๐Ÿ™‚ you little bump looks adorable, you are so cute!

  6. Ok…..I ate grapefruits all through both pregnancies!!! Hubby thought I was crazy!!! Less than a month till November!!!

  7. I would so fed ex you a grape fruit if I thought I could. We have them.

    Sorry. Probably shouldn't have said that. Grapefruit juice maybe?? Get a little fix? LOL

    Okay so I threw up for 7 months with Ava. Hence no more babies. It was AWFUL. All I wanted were bananas.

  8. Congratulations to you ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm so happy to hear the news. If anyone can handle 4, it's you my dear!!! I look forward to hearing of this latest journey!

  9. Really can't get grape fruit? Strange. I'm pretty sure we can here in Texas. I need to investigate! I'd mail ya one! ha! Maybe it's a girl since you feel the same way as Sophia and totally different with the boys?!

  10. Oh I remember that awkward stage. I always wanted to wear a shirt that said I was pregnant and that I didn't just have a beer belly. ๐Ÿ™‚
    But you are the ka-uuuuutest pregger woman! Wish I could give that sweet lil' tummy a squeeze! Love you!

  11. Being pregnant come with a whole new outlook on life…lol. And while there is odd body adjustments I love the side of me that marches over and tells off the 20 something guy for parking in the expecting mothers parking space. I bet you can find a place in Florida that will ship you grape fruits. They are always in season there. ๐Ÿ™‚
